Emergency Preparedness

Disaster Safety & Preparedness

Natural disasters are a constant threat, so it is important we do everything we can to protect our families, our homes, and ourselves from their potentially devastating effects.

In order to stay safe no matter what bad weather comes your way, please see the below disaster safety information.

Is Your Family Prepared?

If an emergency happens in your community, it may take emergency workers some time to reach you. You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.

Learn how quick and easy it is to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies – anytime, anywhere. Use Your Emergency Preparedness Guide to create your own emergency plan. Use the checklists to build a 72-hour emergency kit. These basic steps will help you take care of yourself and your loved ones during an emergency.
